Visiting UCR

Plan Your Visit

When you’re staying at the University of California, Riverside, begin your tour of Riverside right here on campus, with the Eaton Collection, the world’s largest public collection of science fiction. Take a walk to the Botanic Gardens to find a living museum of more than 3,500 plant species from around the world. Hike to the top of Box Spring Reserve to get a mountain view of the surrounding community. Explore the gifts of our campus and city, and our commitment to art, culture and innovation!
